1969 Fender "Telecaster Thinline"

If I could make my dream jazz-caster it would be a Thinline with a rosewood neck.... well... so I did.

Originally the Thinlines came with maple necks only, which in 1969 would have been poly lacquered all over the fingerboard. Though early maple neck Fenders play just fine, the thick polyester finish on the late 60s and 70s necks makes them feel like plastic toys.

No problem, changing one neck for another is a matter of minutes - just as Leo himself had envisioned ! I keep the original neck in the case and have mounted an, also '69, rosewood neck on it. The result is a fine playing guitar with less than 2,5 kilo resting on the shoulder.
